Listen Now: Our “Potcast” Returns, Crypto for Your 401(k) and Tornado Season | Podcasts

Arizona Daily Star’s Eddie Celaya Returns With His Bi-Weekly “Potcast” Here Weed Go! after its launch on 04/20.

Although the program is based in Tucson, the show addresses national issues.

This episode features Samuel Richard of the Arizona Dispensary Association, who talks about the success of marijuana initiatives as well as the pot economy.

Also on the show, Mike Robinette, president of NORML’s Arizona chapter, talks about how much consumers have changed since cannabis prohibition began to end. An interesting piece of the conversation is the semantics behind the differences between the terms “recreational use” and “adult use”.
